Meeting Street Companies Inc. is asking Cornelius for zoning approval to build 99 residential units and a mixed-use “Village Tavern” building on about off South Street near the Cornelius-Davidson line.

The 16.2-acre site is currently woods, between the Antiquity covered bridge and McEver Fields across from Davidson Elementary School. It stretches west along the creek and future greenway to the Curtis Screw factory, on Zion Avenue.

There’s a community meeting Thursday, July 7, at 6pm in Room 204 at Cornelius Town Hall, 21445 Catawba Ave.

The Cornelius Planning Board is tentatively scheduled to consider the proposal at its Aug. 8, 2016, meeting. It could come before the Cornelius Town Board Sept. 19.

The property is currently zoned neighborhood residential, which allows medium densities of 2 to 4 units per acre. Meeting Street is asking the town for conditional zoning, to allow for higher density and the mixed-use building.

Here’s how the project is described on the Cornelius Planning website:

The neighborhood will be a combination of the Tree Tops houses and Williamsburg villas, Chipping Village and Hemlock Village townhomes, Chipping Garden, a central garden and the Village Tavern Inn, a mixed use building.

Joe Roy of Meeting Street was one of the original developers of the nearby Antiquity Cornelius, across the covered bridge. 

Cole Jenest & Stone, whose partners include Davidson Town Board member Brian Jenest, is helping to design the neighborhood.
